Designer Craft Connection
Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Designer Craft Connection blog hop! Each month a very talented group of professional designers get together, pick a theme, and create a project around that theme.  The result is over 50 different projects that we get to share with you, our readers! So, with a click of your mouse on the Designer Craft Connection button that you can find on the right side of my blog, you can “hop” from one blog to another to view these wonderful projects and maybe re-create a few of them for your family and friends.

Don’t forget while you’re hopping around to each site, about this month’s giveaway! 
Julie McGuffe is hosting another great giveaway. This month, Julie is giving away a set of DVD’s from Scrapbook Memories. To enter to win, you must leave a comment on the blog where you find the Scrapbook Memories logo. When you find the logo, leave a comment on the blog about your favorite craft show’s name and the reason why you like that show. Next, hop on over to Julie’s blog at www.juliemcguffee.blogspot.com and leave a comment telling Julie what you’d like to see on her new show. She would like to know about your favorite scrapbooking product, craft or technique.  While you’re there, be sure to check out the Scrapbook Memories logo so you know what to look for as you hop.

Be sure you check back to see what we’re up to with the blog hop. We will have a new theme and post our projects on the first Monday of every month. We will also have a new giveaway, so you won’t want to miss that. Great projects and free giveaways every month! How much fun is that!!! Have fun at the hop and good luck on winning that great prize!
